They did not have a record of my reservation (Open table problem?) but accommodated us. Not sure I’ll use your app again.

For a hotel bar/restaurant we were very pleasantly surprised. We were there a few times over the weekend and the food was always good and the service was excellent. The entire Renaissance Hotel is all about service and this was no exception. We even got some good recommendations from the servers about where else to visit. We will certainly return.

Excellent prime rib and pork belly chop. Wine selection is good and crafted cocktails are interesting while delicious. The restaurant is located in a hotel, which can sometimes not provide the best ambience. Our server was friendly, but not as knowledgeable about things as we kind of expected someone at that level of restaurant to be. We went on a Saturday evening which means terrible Nashville traffic. Allow for extra time if you want valet parking, although the public library is less than a block and parking is usually $10 for the evening. Possibly easier than getting valet, which we found to be the case. We were very pleased with the quality of food and would certainly go back to try other items on the menu.

I have to say that I was blown away by Chef James and the staff. There was a pork belly pork chop on the menu and I told the server that can’t be right. They are 2 different items. She brought Chef James out to explain and he won me over. I order it and it was amazing. Lots of flavor super tender. My wife had the prime rib and that was amazing as well. A great smoke flavor with the fresh herb rub but the roasted potatoes were seasoned to accent the beef ... unforgettable. Returned the second night to a coffee rubbed scallop that the whole group loved and a beet salad that I couldn’t stop eating and I don’t like beats. This is a must eat at place and you must experience Chef James’ balance of flavors ..... 5 stars .. The Hotel has a golden ticket right there.

Little Fib may be a hotel restaurant, but it has a few things going for it that most in that unreliable category do not. It's a short walk from the Ryman. It has a cool layout — with TVs, a wrap-around bar and vintage Johnny Cash film-roll outtake wallpaper. But what will bring me back is the crab hush puppies.

we ordered two appetizers; the cheddar biscuits and hush puppies. The biscuits were a little dry but tasty and the hush puppies were amazing! There was a party of six some of our entrées that were ordered included the chicken noodle soup, grilled cheese, ribeye sandwich, and salad. All of us enjoyed our entrées immensely!

Lil Fib was very good. We ate here before a concert at Bridgestone. We told our server that we had a time issue and she did a great job getting us our food and drinks without us feeling rushed. Just so you know this restaurant is the bottom of the Renaissance hotel. They did a nice job not making it feel like a typical restaurant in a hotel lobby. We all would go back!

We seemed to be an afterthought for the server and the kitchen. We sat there for over 30 minutes waiting for appetizers and were delayed with most other items also. They took two apps off the bill to compensate but still very pricey overall given the lackluster service. Food was reasonably creative and good quality with a few exceptions: steak sandwich was literally a sliced deli meat sandwich. Not a piece or pieces of steak. Pasta au gratin was a Mac n cheese.

I will start by saying the service was pretty good. The server was attentive and pleasant. Unfortunately, the food was not very good. We had a pimento cheese ball and it was basically the same as a cheese ball that one would purchase at the grocery. For an entree, I had the pasta dish and it was extremely bland. i hope they get it right. Best of luck to Little Fib.

We got together for a friend’s birthday. We had 11 in our party and it was a great experience. The restaurant is very cool with art work and seating areas to have drinks to include the bar. Our server was friendly and attentive. All of the food was awesome from the appetizers, meatloaf, fries chicken, pasta au gratin, etc. They even served us a surprise dessert in vintage lunch boxes. I’m surprised it wasn’t busier. Great choice for our dinner!

My friend and I were in town for CMAFest and stopped in for a convenient dinner. We both split the cornbread Madeline’s (cornbread was a tad dry, but that honey salted butter was amazing!) We both ended up getting the Turkey club as well. It was really good with more turkey than I could eat! I ended up pulling half the turkey off and still had plenty. :)

Horrible service!!! Horrible bartenders and let’s top it off with I got served raw chicken! When you have to wait 10+ min for a drink refill. When the bartender clears plates around empty glasses and does not offer refills. These guy had 0 business being behind the bar let alone serving guest. I really had hopes for at least the food but this was so disappointed.

This was my second visit to Little Fib. The first time I went, the restaurant wasn't as crowded and the service was a lot faster. This time, there was a sold out show at Bridgestone and a show at Ryman, so that could be why it took so long. We arrived at 6:10 and at 8pm were rushing to get to our show. We missed the first two songs. The server did a great job under the circumstances. I will go again.
